LATEST: BOWMAN AND MAJANJI LOSE CASE IN COURT OF APPEAL AND STATE IS NOW ALLOWED TO APPEAL JUDGEMENT ON APPLICATION THEY LOST IN HIGH COURT TO SEEK CONCOURT INTERPRETATION
By Mwaka Ndawa

THE COURT of Appeal has granted the State leave to appeal the High Court’s decision to refuse to refer Joseph Malanji and Bowman Lusambo’s petition against it and the ECZ to the Constitutional Court.

The Court has since maintained the ex-parte order it granted the State and the ECZ in which it temporarily stopped the High Court from delivering judgement in a matter where Malanji and Lusambo are challenging the decision by returning officers to declare their nomination invalid in order to participate in the Kwacha and Kabushi by-elections.

This means the High Court has been stopped from delivering judgement in a matter where Malanji and Lusambo are challenging the decision by returning officers to declare their nomination invalid in order to participate in the Kwacha and Kabushi by-elections.

COMMENT: Chances of Bowman and Malanji being on the ballot have extremely dimmed.
